Barratt donates £250 to Green Dragon School
Sponsors a Christmas Card Competition for the Students
PUPILS at Green Dragon Primary School were delighted when it was announced in assembly that a donation made by Barratt West London would be used to buy much-needed art resources.
Following on from the class trip to Great West Quarter, their local Barratt development in Brentford, Green Dragon Primary School welcomed Barratt to attend their assembly and tell the children the good news, as well as make a presentation to the winner and runner-up of the Christmas card competition.
Having impressed the judges with her festive creativity, Phoebe – a Year 5 pupil – won the competition run by Barratt London. Much to the envy of her peers, the budding artist was presented a Nintendo DS, which she said she was especially pleased about because it is pink.
Barratt also had the cards designed by the winner and Dae-von, the runner-up, made up into large cards to send to their families and friends.
Jane Buck, Deputy Headteacher at Green Dragon Primary School, said: “The children were thrilled to see their design in print, a real incentive to go on to be professional artist or designer for all the children, not just the prize winners.”
“Barratt have been so generous helping us to develop our outside classroom activities and, now, with the £250 donation the school council are deciding which art project they would like to run.”
Julia Reynolds, Sales Director of Barratt West London, said: “From having the children on site at Great West Quarter last month to visiting the school for the prize giving, it has been a pleasure meeting pupils from Green Dragon Primary School.”
“Whilst Phoebe and Dae-von deserve a special mention, well done to all those who entered the competition, as we were really impressed by the effort and creativity that went into the cards.”
The state-of-the-art Sales & Marketing Suite at Great West Quarter is open daily from 10am to 6pm. For further information, please contact 020 8326 7277 or visit www.barratthomes.co.uk/gwq.
